Door een goede combinatie van inspirerende voorbeelden, praktische theorie en zelf aan de slag, leer je in één dag niet alleen de kracht van infographic storytelling, maar ook hoe je zelf snel ermee aan de slag kunt!

Infographic Storytelling with Valentina d’Efilippo was a good introductory training for me to get an overview of the tools and ways that can be used to formulate a story of the data graphically. The activities with paper, pencil and colored pens were fun. It was interesting to see that with the same task to do, people can have different versions/ways of presenting the story. Thank you Goof for organizing this type of training plus the great location in Utrecht.
I took part in the DataViz Drawing workshop with Stefanie Posavec. The organisation could not have been better. Starting with direct and friendly communication from the first email to the chocolate on the desk; the organisers went out of their ways to make the participants feel welcome. Stefanie is a fantastic tutor. Her enthusiasm for her work is incredible and very motivating. I had a lot of fun during the workshop and got so many inspirations for my daily work, that I can't wait to apply.
As a Business Intelligence analyst, I am very satisfied to have attended the Graphical Literacy course.
Not only it provided me with a very clear, linear and systematic overview on the concepts and techniques I apply every day in my job for treating and representing data, but it was a great inspiration and stimulus to my creativity.
I am much more critical towards my visual choices and I found a better focus on the final user rather than on what pleases me as an analyst. Spending more time to think through a visual can add great value to your stories.
I also discovered how great an ally is paper for releasing our creative potential and arrive quite efficiently to a first draft of our representation.
I recommend this course to anyone passionate about visualization (both for work or studies) who would like to challenge his/ her current knowledge of data visualization.
